Love that witty title? Yeah...no wit here today. I've been sitting here thinking for 10 minutes just on the title and finally gave up. Oh well.
Marquette here. Em's headed out of town, so I'm taking over for her for a few days. This has been a busy summer for us both! Anyway, we've got a double Pinstrosity for you this evening! Two different pins, but one same general idea. The Canvas Quote.
The Original Pins
|"Let your faith be bigger than your fear."|
|"You are Beautiful"|
|"I want to be the one to walk in the sun"|
So lesson number 1, read the directions (that seems to be a common theme...but we know we all do it) and use the right supplies (but at the same time, props to Ariel for just jumping in and seeing what she could come up with on her own...I do love people who will dive in head first and let their creativity work through).
But how to fix the bleeding through problem. As Megan over at the Brassy Apple says in her Canvas Quote post, there isn't a magic fix to this, but she does give some great ideas on how to try to minimize the running and bleeding of the paint.
"1) hold your paint can further away from the letters. this means more coats of paint but possibly less bleeding underneath.
2) Some of my paint did bleed a bit but I had better success when the canvas was "treated" and not a brand new "slick" canvas. The one I covered with fabric I had the best success with. The contact paper "grabbed" onto the fabric better.
3) Here's a gal that tried my tutorial and had GREAT success! notice they type of canvas or artwork she started with too! I hope this tips help! "
